9 Cute Flower Arrangement Tips & Tricks
Arranging flowers can be intimidating and frustrating! The bouquet always look so pretty in the store, and then you get home and plop it in a vase only to be disappointed. Arranging flowers is definitely an art, but with a few tips and tricks up your sleeve, you can create floral arrangements as good as the pros! It takes a little bit of practice and creativity, but just about anyone can make store-bought bouquets or flowers picked right from your garden look stunning in a vase.
If you have ever tried arranging flowers in a wide mouth vase or bowl, then you know that the flowers tend to just fall to the side, making it difficult to arrange something that looks half-way decent. If you form a grid with cellophane tape (or any tape you have on hand), the tape will support your flowers and give you better control of your arrangement. Just be sure that the rim of your bowl or vase is dry and your container is full of water before assembling your grid. The only downfall I’ve found with this method is that it is more difficult to change the water.
